A little competition is a good thing. Especially when you're competing at something that really matters. Like barbecue. And let's face it, whether you're competing against the top smoke masters, the guy next door, or yourself, barbecue matters. So, for all you folks who like to win – the smoke pit crews, the Backyard Chefs the apron-wearing, tong-carrying people who live to "Grill" – it is YOU for whom we build our Yoder Smokers.

While barrel cooking is nothing new, it has never before been brought to the mass market in a form that is both affordable and simple to use, producing perfectly cooked meals every time. We believe that everyone that enjoys outdoor cooking will want a Pit Barrel® Cooker because everyone who tries one is simply amazed by the flavor it produces. 

 

Made in the USA, The Good-One® Smoker/Grill was first conceived and built in 1988 in Kansas. Its unique offset firebox cooking chamber design holds even heat over an extended period of time. This smoker/grill takes competition barbecuing to new heights and produces outstanding smoked meats and other outdoor cooked foods. It requires significantly less attention than other smokers and grills. 


“Before you start smoking brisket, Aaron [Franklin] recommends purchasing a smoker with a separate firebox so the meat doesn’t cook over direct fire, but slowly by hot smoke. He recommends pits by Pitts & Spitts...”

In 1948, Grant Hastings produced the first Hasty-Bake Charcoal Oven. As one of the original manufacturers of the “backyard barbecue,” Hastings was a pioneer in the industry. Specifically, Hasty-Bake introduced the first portable unit, the first hooded unit, and a new method of cooking using indirect heat. Hastings’ design controlled the intensity of heat by using vents, a heat deflector, a ventless hood and an adjustable fire box, revolutionizing the method in which food was cooked.


Our fleet of ceramic grills are designed to fit everyone's outdoor cooking needs. From our flagship Jack Daniel's Edition Oval XL 400 to our classic round Kamado. Every Primo grill is made to be a primary outdoor cooker, but any of them can be added to a built-in outdoor kitchen or to complement an existing grill or smoker. To give you an idea of the size of our grills and cooking area, we've rated them based on the number of steaks that can be grilled at one time.


Flat out the best ceramic grill on the planet!  That may be a bold statement, but we invite you to look under the hood and see for yourself!  If you compare Kamado Joe Ceramic Grill with other ceramic grills on the market, you’ll soon recognize that Kamado Joe’s the best built grill on the market and that fit and finish are second to none! But there’s a lot more to a Kamado Joe grill than meets the eye.

A Memphis Wood Fire Grill is the backyard chef’s secret weapon. It has you covered from pork chops to pies; from burgers to brisket to banana bread. By combining four separate cooking techniques (grilling, wood-fire searing, low-n-slow smoking, and convection baking), it is quite possibly the most versatile and flavor-enhancing device on the planet.

Moreover, our Memphis Wood Fire Grills offer the latest in state-of-the-art technology and intelligent design. Our Memphis Mobile App (iOS and Android) ensures you can monitor and adjust your grill no matter where you are—at work, on the lake, or downstairs watching the game. In addition to our Wi-Fi capabilities, our wood pellet grills are made from the most durable stainless steel on the market. No matter where you live or how you prefer to grill, you are assured to find the right Memphis Grill to fit your home.
